The Solar Photon 1 by Terra Nova is at the forefront of superlight tent design, and at a mere 865g it has the lightest packed weight of any self-supporting tent currently available. Made from the same cutting-edge fabrics as the Laser Photon 1 tent, the Solar Photon 1 is designed especially for superlight solo backpacking. The clever design of the Solar Photon 1 tent allows room to sit up and access the porch, while the single pole finish at the foot end keeps the space required to pitch it to a minimum. For superlight backpackers who want a tent they can use in all but the worst conditions, the Solar Photon 1 is the ultimate balance of space, features and weight. This tent is compatible with the Terra Nova Fastpack system, allowing those who want to trim weight further when conditions permit, to use the flysheet and the *fastpack groundsheet which is available separately*.
  • 14x Titanium 1g pegs
  • 3x Reflective Guylines with Clamcleats supplied with this tent
  • Groundsheet Protectors sold separately
  • Note: Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction we are unable to factory seal the seams in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and it's possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent
  • This Terra Nova product is guaranteed to the original owner against defects in materials and workmanship for the lifetime of the product

    Comments about Terra Nova Solar Elite Tent - 1 Person, 3 Season:

    I've used this tent over 30 nights of bicycle touring in Alaska and on Pacific Coast route (wet) and perhaps 20 nights of wilderness camping in Southeast Alaska rainforest. Keeps me dry. Use a Mylar space blanket for ground cloth. Careful with my gear, don't leave up extended periods (pack and move each day). In nearly new condition.

    The tent with poles fits easily into my panniers so no worries of losing. Pegs are a bit lame, added a couple a bit sturdier for really bad weather. Room to carefully store four bike panniers under the rain fly yet outside tent. Does require care exiting when wet out as can drip into tent. I have recommended this tent to friends (why I am at this page now). I've had mine for 2.5 years. I'm a tent junky (have 5 now, each for particular uses) so this tent is reserved for times I need an ultralight.
